# Density Functionals of Chemical Bonding

@article{Putz2008DensityFO, title={Density Functionals of Chemical Bonding}, author={Mihai Viorel Putz}, journal={International Journal of Molecular Sciences}, year={2008}, volume={9}, pages={1050 - 1095} }

The behavior of electrons in general many-electronic systems throughout the density functionals of energy is reviewed. The basic physico-chemical concepts of density functional theory are employed to highlight the energy role in chemical structure while its extended influence in electronic localization function helps in chemical bonding understanding. In this context the energy functionals accompanied by electronic localization functions may provide a comprehensive description of the global… Expand
